  • Debra R Schoenberg

    Cheryl Sena is an outstanding family law attorney. I've worked with Ms. Sena as opposing and co-counsel on several cases over the past four years. She always displays professionalism and attention to detail as she vigorously advocates on behalf of her clients. She provides a certain level of care and sympathy which is so necessary in our field. She truly earns her title of "Family Law Specialist."

  • Kenneth Francis Matejka

    Through my long-term job at the Bar Association, I was familiar with the work of over one hundred San Francisco family lawyers. Cheryl Sena was the best family lawyer I knew and when I needed a lawyer for my divorce, I hired her. She was great and I refer every family law case that comes to me to her.
